Andy Roddick: "Here the best of 2022 between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic"

What a great year of emotions was 2022! We have seen particular situations right from the start, such as the exclusion of Novak Djokovic from the Australian Open. In Melbourne there was the great comeback of Rafael Nadal, who, returning after an injury, denied all the criticisms of the previous months, and was the first player to conquer 21 Grand Slams in history.

Rafa repeated himself in Paris where he beat his great rival Novak Djokovic, denying all the controversies. The Serbian champion had a troubled season, many tournaments did not allow him to play but in the end he ended anyway with the victory of a Grand Slam at Wimbledon and with the triumph of a few days ago at the ATP Finals in Turin.

Nole thus reached Roger Federer with 6 titles in the Finals. Djokovic and Nadal, but not only: this season there was also the explosion of Carlos Alcaraz, current number one in the world, the youngest ever. The Spanish athlete surprised everyone with an incredible growth in this 2022, he won 5 titles and above all he triumphed in New York, winning the US Open as the first Slam of the year.

Roddick lines up on the best of 2022

Former American tennis player Andy Roddick has always been very active in the social world. In recent days, rumors had emerged that according to which Roddick Alcaraz was the best of 2022 and not Djokovic or Nadal.

Fans have teased the American by claiming that he had not chosen the other two just out of envy and specifically because Rafa has practically closed his career, with several important victories. Roddick responded to this and chose the best tennis player of 2022.

The former number one in the world commented, almost annoyed, the fans and said: "I have read what has been said in these days, but you will not find a fan. Rafa's bigger than me. For me he was the best of 2022, his two Grand Slams make the difference."

This was also the year of the retirement of Roger Federer and Serena Williams, the two greatest legends of this tennis era.
